Workshop Summary:

The three will partake in a panel discussion regarding current technologies involved in vitro implantation, ex vivo embryogenesis, and other secondary fertilization/conception methods. They will also take time to discuss the ethical issues associated with using existing technologies and how it aligns with the Catholic Church. Questions from the audience will follow their workshop.

Pro-life perspectives from a layperson and a physician combined with the clergy point of view diversify the application and awareness of a controversial topic that might not be understood in our present day and age.
